Edmund Kirke on Rosecrans. He sat bolt upright in a rosewood arm-chair, covered with faded brocatelle, and sadly out at the elbows; and, with a cigar in his mouth, and a knife in his hand, was rapidly dissecting the letters which lay on the table before him. When my name was mentioned he rose, took my hand, and gave me a quick, searching glance. In t hat glance—l felt it —he sounded me, took my measure—as accurately as if he had been my tailor —and, with unerring decision, fixed my exact place in the scale of creation. From my first entrance into Kentucky, from high and low, black and white, bond and free, military men and civilians, I had heard nothing but extravagant eulogies of this man, and I had come prepared to be disappointed in him; but that one glance, the indescribable smile that passed over his face, and a certain atmosphere of j3ower which seemed to envelope him, made me feel that, for once, the popular estimate was the true one. And no one ever came within his influence...

Washington, Sept. 6, 8 P. M. Major General Dix, New York: In honor of the capture of Atlanta, Grant yesterday ordered a salute to be fired with shotted guns from every battery bearing upon the enemy. Nothing has been received by the Department from Atlanta since the 4th instant, nor anything south of Nashville, on account of the derangement of the telegraph lines by the prevailing storms. No movements of importance havo taken place In the Shenandoah Valley. A dispatch from Gen. Grant, just received, I gives a statement from the Richmond Examiner of this inornirig, that John Morgan was surprised and killed, and his staff captured at Greenville, Term., yesterday. An unofficial dispatch received by this Department this morning, from Lexington, states that General Gillen had officially reported the surprise and defeat of Morgan at Greenville; that John Morgan was killed, and the staff captured; from 50 to 100 Rebels killed, 70 prisoners taken, and one gun captured. The report being conf...

directly under the tree in which the boy was, when, calculating the distance with an accuracy born of the emergency, Will swung himself lightly down, and —strange and providential happening—landed upon the back of the animal the courier rode. The horse plunged a little; the man, too accustomed to danger of all kinds—for these couriers are a very brave and tried set of men—to lose his presence of mind made no sound. "Turn back quickly," whispered the boy; "there's danger ahead!" The man did not hesitate a single instant. — With an instinct sharpened by long experience he recognized the warning as worthy of notice, strangely as it had come, and wheeling his horse suddenly to the right, he rode at top-speed to a thicker portion of the wood, and, skirting along it, soon distanced Jake and his men, though they followed him. Upon discovering his change of route shots were fired after him, but ineffectually, and he eventually reached his destination, bearing the boy with him. Will became t...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Passed Through.—On Wednesday morning last two regiments, tho 200th and 205th Penna. Vols., passed through this camp en route for the front. These regiments were but recently recruited in Pennsylvania, from Cumberland Dauphin, and its central counties, and are composed of as fine and large men as we hate seen for a long time. Many of them have the unmistakeable bronze, the peculiarly American swagger, and the easy gait of the veteran soldier. Indeed, it seems that the great portion of the new levy who enlist as volunteers, are of this class of men, who find a recurrence to old habits, and trials, and dangers, for a single year, together with an aggregate yearly pay equal to that of commissioned officers, not at all disagreeable. These men deserve their bounties, and are far more capable oi earning them than others unused to son ice and untried in battle. The abo A re regiments Avere full, presented a fine appearance, and Avill yet Avin...

The Course and Conduct of the War. A wise maxim of the greatest general of antiquity prescribes that we should esteem nothing done till all is done ; but it is probable that its intent is rather to point out tho danger of that indolent dwelling on the deeds of the past, which shuts out of view the duties and demands of the present, than to discourage (especially when a great task is laid upon a nation) such a retrospect of what has already been accomplished as will inspire courage for carrying it through to the end. The country has lately passed through that trying experience which history shows is sure to come upon a people plunged into a great war— a period when, the first popular enthusiasm having died out, the burdens and bereavements of the war are brought keenly home to all, and a reaction of general despondency results. In this mood of the public mind men forgot that, Avhile they have suffered, the enemy also has suffered in an equal or even greater degree, and that, too perh...

Official War Bulletins. Washington, Sept. 14, 1864. Major General Dix, New York : Lieutenant General Grant telegraphs this department in respect to the draft, as follows: " City Point, 10:30 A. M., Sept. 13, 1864. Hon. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War .- We ought to have the whole number of men called for by the President in the shortest possible time. Prompt action in filling our armies will have more effect upon the enemy than a victory over them. They profess to believe, and make their men believe, there is such a party North in favor of recognizing Southern independence, that the draft cannot be enfored. Let them be undeceived. Deserters come into our lines daily, who tell us that the men are nearly universally tired of the Avar, and that desertions Avould be much more frequent, but they believe peace will be negotiated after the fall election. The enforcement of the draft and prompt filling up of our armies will save the shedding of blood to an immense degree. U. S. Grant, Li...

recall only that of February 26, 1764, which alloavs the Invalids stationed at tho hotel, and all j those who composed the detached companies, to retire to the provinces and there marry. Louis XV. in this ordinance granted annual pensions, proportioned to the rank of the Invalids: the lieutenant-colonels had five hundred livres, the captains from two hundred and fifty to three hundred, the lieutenants tAvo hundred, the subo/ncers sevonty-tAvo, and tho soldiers fifty-four. Moderate as these pensions were, more than two thousand invalid officers and soldiers returned to private life. Would not this fact alone prove j that the political and military writers who studied the organization of the Invalid- AA r ere not wrong in blaming the re-union? It is a weighty question, and we very humbly avow our incompetence in such a matter. It would Tie to take a retrograde step towards the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, or rather it would be to givo a large development to this thought of "Mon...

EDITORIAL JOTTINGS. —Gen. John C. Fremont has written a letter declining to run as a candidate for the Presidency. Cochrane, who was on the same ticket for Vice President, has also declined. There are now but two tickets In the field, headed respectively by Lincoln and McClellan, from which to choose. The less the merrier. —Mobile, though not yet captured, is in almost the same position as though it were. The port is effectually blockaded, the guns cover the city, and doubtless the inhabitants, penned in as they are, would prefer its occupation by our troops to a regular siege. It is confldently expected that Wilmington, N. C, will soon be in a similar position. —Col. Thompson, of the Ist lowa cavalry, who has just arrived in St. Louis from Little Rock, Ark., says that Price, with a force of 30,000 men, was near Little Rock, and it Is supposed was on the march to the State of Missouri.

Mounted upon our steeds, one of which was a rare specimen of condemed hide and bones, we started off about 9 o'clock, enjoying as we rode along the priviliges of a refreshing breeze. On our way up many scenes of interest were presented to our view.
